Description of project:
The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) funded a US$33,000 project to support the development of three forest based enterprises in six Caribbean countries – Dominica, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. Between 2013 and 2014, CANARI, along with 23 forest managers in the six countries, developed criteria that were then used to choose three projects that were awarded small grants of US$5,000 each to develop their enterprises. The awardees were the Smithfield Local Forest Management Committee of Jamaica, the North Leeward Tourism Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Brasso Seco Tourism Action Committee of Trinidad and Tobago. Each awardee was assigned a mentor to support its project activities.
